A Curious Comment

What does this really mean?

What I found most intriguing about Greg Johnson’s remarkable screed in favor of Andrew Yang was this comment:
And now, with the rise of Andrew Yang, American White Nationalists have a new cause around which to unite our warring tribes.
Perhaps I am reading too much into that, and it is nothing more than hyperbole inspired by the fervid excitement the Alt Wrong has in supporting an Oriental.

But, if we, for the sake of argument, take the comment at face value, it means that Johnson believes that the various feuding factions of Der Movement can come together, and at peace, united by their support for an anti-White Chinaman.

Taken literally, this is ludicrous. First, the rank-and-file are not all going to get on the Yang Gang Train. But you will say that Johnson was referring only to “insiders” – the “leadership.”  

Fine, then. We restrict ourselves to the real affirmative action “leadership.” We can exclude all who are outside America, for example, those in Europe, who, insofar as I can tell, can care less about Yang. Note that Johnson himself specifically referred to "American White Nationalists."  Who can this be?

It is clear that hardcore racialists like Kevin Strom and Will Williams of the National Alliance are not going to support an anti-White Chinaman who wants to buy off Whites with 1,000 pieces of silver. In addition, as elitist vanguardists, their strategy precludes an interest in mainstream political candidates, even White ones.

So, it seems to me that if Johnson’s comment has any real meaning, then it is a sign of an interest in a rapprochement between the Alt Wrong faction and the remnants of the Spencerian Alt Right.  Johnson and Spencer united in the common cause of Yang?

Given how much Johnson despises Spencer, I find it difficult to believe that such a scenario was originally his idea.  However, there may well be others in the Alt Wrong who would like  to make use of a humbled Spencer for their own pro-Jewish and pro-Asian agendas. Given that Spencer is already part of the Yang Gang, and has a history of Yellow Fever, he would seem to be well suited for becoming part of an Alt Wrong alliance.  And, of course, given “the Derb,” any Alt Wrong alliance is going to have to be relatively accepting of “rice burning” in any case.  After all, that’s a “rite of passage” in the Alt Right, eh?

I wonder – are Friberg and Spencer no longer close allies?  Would that make Spencer more palatable as an Alt Wronger?

A generalized rapprochement seems unlikely today, but given the ever-shifting alliances and feuds in Der Movement, who knows about the future?  Not that I would ever believe Johnson and Spencer are likely to become bosom buddies and close allies.  But perhaps they’ll lay off the feuding and be two cogs in the Yellow Supremacist Alt Wrong machine. Not today, not tomorrow, but…again, who knows?  Asia uber alles!

Of course, I am sure that this is all just more “low information moralizing” on my part. Much ado about nothing. However, Johnson’s comment was still rather curious, as was his sudden embrace of the same Yangism that Spencer has been supporting.  Better a false positive than a false negative.  I’d rather imagine something that doesn’t come to pass than ignore something that does. The conquest of the “movement” by the Alt Wrong, and the sacrifice of White racial interests on the Altar of Asia, would indeed be such a “something.”

Finally, I have to say, again, how shocked and disgusted I am over this whole Yang thing. And that’s really telling you something - that someone as negative and cynical about the “movement” as I am is still shocked about this fiasco. Indeed, if someone told me one year ago that both Greg Johnson and Richard Spencer would be supporters of a Chinaman Presidential candidate, an Oriental who wants to buy off Whites with UBI because he fears that dumb Whites unable to compete with Asians will lash out with violence – if someone told me that, I would not have believed it. No matter the low opinion I hold of “movement” “leadership”- I would have scoffed at that, and thought it ridiculous, thought it impossible that even those guys, who are wrong about almost everything, would be so childishly foolish as to behave in such an embarrassingly asinine manner.  But, no. Those fellows always out-do themselves; they always find novel, innovative ways to make White racial nationalism into a laughingstock and to discredit the racialist perspective. I suppose we have to give them credit for consistency, if nothing else.
